Report: Chiellini doubt for Ajax

Giorgio Chiellini could miss Juventus’ Champions League quarter-final first leg against Ajax on Wednesday with a reported calf injury.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Chiellini pulled up with the problem at the end of training on Monday.

The newspaper explains he is now ‘a serious doubt’ for the trip to Amsterdam, leaving Max Allegri with only Daniele Rugani to call upon as a replacement.

That is because fellow defenders Martin Caceres and Andrea Barzagli are already nursing injuries of their own.

Chiellini: 'Kean like Balo and Trez'

Giorgio Chiellini compared Juventus teammate Moise Kean to David Trezeguet and Mario Balotelli after another winning goal.

It came at the end of a week in which he had scored in both Euro 2020 qualifiers against Finland and Liechtenstein.
